The UART: What it is and how it works
<emphasis>Copyright © 1996 Frank Durda IV <email>uhclem@FreeBSD.org</email>, All Rights Reserved. 13 January 1996.</emphasis>
The Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART) controller is the key component of the serial communications subsystem of a computer. The UART takes bytes of data and transmits the individual bits in a sequential fashion. At the destination, a second UART re-assembles the bits into complete bytes.
Serial transmission is commonly used with modems and for non-networked communication between computers, terminals and other devices.
There are two primary forms of serial transmission: Synchronous and Asynchronous. Depending on the modes that are supported by the hardware, the name of the communication sub-system will usually include a <literal>A</literal> if it supports Asynchronous communications, and a <literal>S</literal> if it supports Synchronous communications. Both forms are described below.
Some common acronyms are:
UART Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter
